It's a 20-25 minute walk or a 2 euro bus to the centre of Florence, well away from the tourist areas. Very quiet, easy to sleep in.
The very helpful manager gave us a map and all te information we needed to get around. That was of great help.
The room (number 23) was the largest room I've seen, the king sized bed was comfortable but it was two mattresses, not very romantic. There's no safe or tea / coffee making facilities but it is great basic accommodation.
Wifi signal was very week on the 2nd level but the good news is there is a lift! We also were very surprised to find an award winning restaurant just a block away with fantastic wine, service and great food.
